Sizing Recommendations for Enterprise Vault 9

Created: 22 Jan 2013 • Updated: 04 Feb 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm looking for some ballpark figures for sizing on EV 9 mail archiving. I have a client with around 3800 comprising of two main sites  - site A will have approx. 1800 users, site B about 1200 users and the balance of the users located in various smaller sites.

EV is currently installed in the environment at site A with site B being roughly 1000 miles away. I estimate that the company generates around 100000 - 150000 mails a day and users will frequently access archvied items although I cannot say at what rate that happens although from the calls received it is quite frequent.

What general sizing recommendations would anyone suggest for an environment such as this?

Hi AlanJ,

Are you a Partner?  If yes, there are sizing tools on SYMIQforPartners.  I would recommend you start with those.

Just as a completely rough way to compare, we have ~800 mailboxes at a single site.  Our yearly combined stores (mail and journal) are ~300GB. We have ~100GB of Indexes.

If I was helpful in solving your issue please mark my post with a thumbs up or a solution!  Have a great day :)
